Music and sports

Outdoor concerts are the best however there are not too many opportunities for Torontonians to enjoy such events as the weather is not always favorable. Visit the open venues of Molson Canadian Amphitheatre and Echo Beach where you can attend a few awesome shows. This year you can listen to Bruno Mars, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Bjork, Bob Dylan and others. If you are more into sports than music we suggest you purchase a ticket to a baseball game at Rogers Center. Root for the Jays!
